Shout! on “The Headmasters” Dub & Pre-order for Takara Collection

{mosimage}Good news and bad news regarding the Takara titles that Shout! Factory is handling. The bad news is that for those wishing an English-dub track on The Headmasters, the answer is no. The first key reason is budget – scripting, studio, voice actors, post-production, etc. For older fans that know of the fan-dub for Headmasters, the answer is also "no". Two things that would have to be considered is the translation's accuracy and getting it cleared by the original crew, among other factors. Plus, Hasbro didn't approve the fan-dub. TV Shows on DVD explains it in better detail.

The good news? Shout! has put up a pre-order for Transformers – The Japanese Collection Complete Series! Retail is $89.99 USD, with box art of Victory's Star Saber by Andrew Griffith! This boxset is scheduled for a July 5, 2011, release.
